St Christopher’s School has a long-established House System to which all students from Nursery to Year 13 belong. The Houses are named after birds of prey which are native to the Gulf region and synonymous with Arab culture. The Houses also have colours so that pupils are easily identified in events such as Sports Days and Swimming Galas: Falcon, Kestrel, Merlin and Osprey.
Family members are placed in the same House as their siblings to ensure there is no family rivalry! Staff in the school are also placed in a House, ensuring that all Houses are well supported. In the Infant and Junior Schools, each House has a group of House Captains from Year 6 and a Head of House who is a member of staff.
In addition to the sporting side of our House system, there are also opportunities for the children to represent their House in Maths, English and other areas of school life. Competition is fierce, but good sportsmanship prevails. House Points are awarded for things such as effort, achievement and good behaviour. And when final points are read out, all Houses receive equal applause!
